David A. Hazlehurst – In Memoriam

David Hazlehurst David Hazlehurst - US Masters

David was well known at FBYC for his involvement in the Laser Fleet and beyond.  David was our fleet captain in the late 90’s and early 2000’s and chaired our Chesapeake Laser Masters Championship during those years including the US Laser Masters that we held in 2000.  A quick clip of him from that event.  David would serve numerous years on the FBYC board and was Commodore in 2003.  Afterward he was a champion for volunteerism at the club.

David enjoyed traveling on the Masters circuit around the country and even sailed in the Masters World Championships in Chile (1997), Austrailia (1999), Mexico (2000) and Ireland (2001).  He won a number of awards at FBYC including the Piankatank Award, Matthew Fontaine Maury, and Race Committee Trophies.

Alain reflected “He might not have been there at the start of the laser fleet [at FBYC], but he was the one who really made it what it was.”

David later moved into bigger boats sailing on his Dehler 34 sailing in FBYC’s PHRF fleet.

From FBYC and the masters sailors who attend the Chesapeake Bay Laser Masters – he will be missed.

2016 FBYC Laser Frostbite Regatta

The Laser Frostbite Regatta was the last event of the year at FBYC and we made it quite easy on the RC by setting a course that allowed them to signal it from the dock.  The wind was just the right direction out of the south west where the RC could run the races from the end of the dock.  We used a boat to move the weather mark and pin.   They had a great time and the proximity to shore enabled the sailors make breaks at the club in between races.

10/30 FBYC Laser Frostbite Regatta

The wind was a little light for this one, but we rolled through the races doing short courses with 10 boats.   Charlie Brewer once again sailed incredibly consistently and took the day.  I followed in 2nd with Len close behind.  What a great way to end the season! – Jon D

2016 Chesapeake Bay Laser Masters Championship Results

It was the 35th Anniversary of the Chesapeake Bay Laser Masters Championship and the regatta is finally old enough to be a competitor.  The color coral commemorates a 35th anniversary and the shirts we designed turned out pretty cool:

Regatta tshirt

The first day saw medium winds just into the double digits with mostly clear skies.  In 5 races we had some close competition up top between Gavin O’Hare and Charlie Brewer who both finished the day tied with 20 points.  Mike Schmidt was close behind in the 41 boat fleet.

Alain and his kitchen crew prepared another fabulous me and a tent city popped up full of sailors.

Sunday started out with no wind and we waited ashore as it began to build about an hour later.  A little lighter than yesterday we ran a little shorter courses and made it through 4 more races.  Charlie and Gavin stayed close and Gavin managed to edge just ahead of Charlie to win the championship.

Thanks to Alain, Rick, Len, Frank and everyone else who helped make this another great Chesapeake Bay Laser Masters Championship.  And after 13 years of only being the event chair – I’ll be looking forward to next year where I can both run it and qualify to sail in it!

2016 FBYC Fall laser Regatta Resullts

We had a great day for sailing on Saturday for our Laser Fall Regatta.  We had 7 sailors out and we took out 6 Lasers and a RIB.  Each sailor took two turns running the races while everyone else sailed.  Jon jumped from boat to boat and sailed a different boat each race.  We did 14 total races in just over 3 hours right off the dock in a 4-6 kt north east breeze.  We used Ruthana Jenkin’s auto horn to run a 3 minute horn start so all the RC person had to do was hit start, call the over earlys, and record the finishes.

Charlie Brewer was most consistent and won the day by 3 points over Jon Deutsch.  3rd was Nicholas Cabell who is a member of FBYC Laser Development team.  And a big welcome to Denton Roberts who sailed his first race in a Laser in over a decade and looked sharp and beat some boats in some races.

Following racing, Ruthana Jenkins had some bbq and we all sat around the table and recounted the day of sailing.  Thanks Ruthana for the food and the use of your starting horn.

2016 Laser Summer Regatta Results

No wind in the morning so we postponed onshore for 2 hours and then went out to catch the sea breeze.  The Braun family ran 5 races for us and we had 8 standard rigs and 4 radials out racing.   Charlie Brewer sailed a superb day and wasn’t able to be caught taking 5 bullets.  Jon Deutsch finished 2nd scrambling to stay ahead of Rob W and Csilla Gal. Big thanks to Matt Braun and Doug Bendura for heading up the RC.
